Welsh Tower Houses were fortified stone houses that were built between the early 14th and 15th centuries. They are related to Tower houses which occur in considerable numbers in Ireland and Scotland and to a much lesser extent in England. A map showing the distribution of Tower houses within the United Kingdom is given in Houses of the Welsh Countryside. The main concentration of Tower houses is in southern Pembrokeshire.

This generously illustrated introduction to the development of Welsh homes from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution tells the story of a vital part of Wales' rich architectural heritage. It explores house types such as the open hall, the longhouse and the cottage alongside distinctive regional forms such as the Snowdonian house and the wonderful timber-framed architecture of the Welsh border. The book is based on the pioneering work of Peter Smith with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales that resulted in the influential classic ""Houses of the Welsh Countryside"" - an internationally known study that has had a profound influence on the understanding and appreciation of traditional buildings in Wales since its first publication in 1975. This new introduction updates the story with the latest information and interpretations and makes a beautiful companion to the landmark television series ""Cartrefi Cefn Gwlad Cymru"" on S4C. With maps showing the geography of house-types, specially-commissioned photographs and detailed computer-generated reconstructions prepared for the television series, this book will appeal to home-owners, architects, historians and all who enjoy traditional buildings and the fascinating stories they tell of the lives of the people of Wales.
